2020 Kia Telluride Towers Over Competition

The luxury-inspired 2020 Kia Telluride stands far above the competition thanks to its power-packed engine, tech-filled cabin, and ample cargo capacity. The 8-passenger 2020 Telluride boasts a standard 21 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seating and 46 cubic feet of space when the rear row is folded down. The Telluride can be transformed from a people-mover to a cargo-hauler when both rear rows of seats are folded down, expanding the cargo area to 87 cubic feet. Higher Telluride trim levels house seating for seven passengers instead of eight, opting for two captain's chairs in the second row in place of the three-passenger bench seat. The competing 2020 Nissan Pathfinder falls short of the Telluride, offering less standard and maximum cargo space.

Not only does the Telluride offer more room in its cabin than the Pathfinder, but it offers more tech too. Both the Telluride and Pathfinder offer a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen display infotainment center, but only the Telluride offers Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as standard equipment.

Drivers will get more power on the road when they get behind the wheel of a 2020 Telluride as opposed to a 2020 Pathfinder. The Telluride generates up to 291 horsepower with its 3.8-liter V6 engine, while the Pathfinder falls behind generating just 284 horsepower.
